Take advantage of two-for-one tickets during Off Broadway week, February 17 – March 2. Unusual subject matter and experimentation often make Off-Broadway productions the choice of savvy theater-goers. Technically, what makes a show “Off Broadway” is the size of a venue—Off Broadway means the theater can seat 100-499 patrons and adheres to trade union contracts.

Off Broadway does not indicate the quality of the production, or its location relative to the thoroughfare known as Broadway. Off Broadway theaters can be found in Midtown, within sight of Broadway theaters, or as far south as the East Village and SoHo.

To purchase tickets online, by phone or at the box office, use the promotional codes found on NYCgo.com.
